Elementary School Supplies (Grades 4 - 6)


July 1, 2017

Dear Parents

Printed on the back is a list of supplies your child will need from the first day of school.

We are enclosing a list of supplies your child will need in the classroom.  We’ve also included a supply charge on your school fees invoice (the one that has your tuition.) If you would like to purchase supplies yourself, please let us know before the end of August when the bulk supply order is placed, and we’ll remove the charge.  

For those who view this task as, “not one of my favorite things to do in the summer,” write a check now and scratch it off your list!

Sincerely

Sheldon Thompson, Director

P.S.  If you are purchasing a new backpack for your child please be reminded that storage space is at a premium. A SMALL backpack is definitely better!  Backpacks with wheels may look cool, but they definitely take up more space and they don’t work particularly well going over the wood chips at Harborside – please, no backpacks with wheels!
